I’m a NYC guy. Hudsons Along the Hudson offers little bit of everything. From the Pacemaker photo shoot, to the variety of shots showing NYC’s large fleet of steam locos, and the finale with the Dreyfess Hudson pulling the Twentieth Century Limited at speed! I also enjoyed all the technical info about the Hudsons as well. The NYC Hudson is hands down, my favorite locomotive!

Hudsons Along the Hudson. This feature celebrates one of the best-known steam locomotives in history: the high-speed, high-stepping thoroughbred passenger engine, the New York Central Hudson. The first 4-6-4 steam engine ever developed delivered the speed to power the crack streamliners over the "water level route" from New York to Chicago. These beauties are seen racing along the shore of the Hudson River, and elsewhere around the system. The great luxury trains of the Central are all here: The Twentieth Century Limited, The Commodore Vanderbilt, The Pacemaker, The Empire State Express, and a dozen others. This title was made from films that were old, but crystal clear. Only the best footage was used. Also includes brief views of hump yard and branch line operation.

Niagaras and Mohawks. This one will give you goose bumps! A feast of steam hard at work across the length of the New York Central System includes streamliners like The Commodore Vanderbilt and the Chicagoan. One of the wonders of the steam locomotive world, The New York Central 4-8-4 Niagara is featured along with the Mohawk, the workhorse of steam that ruled the New York Central mainline for almost 20 years before the advent of the Hudson. Commuters, mail, and crack luxury trains head down the shore of the Hudson River to New York City, transporting you trackside. Also at the famous division point in Elkhart, Indiana roller bearing Niagaras drift though the yard with 5000 tons and exhale barely a sigh, only to awake like bull elephants when they feel the mainline beneath their feet. The finale features "Gotham Steam" on the Erie and the Jersey Central in the 1940s and early '50s.
